Happy birthday Khaair Morrison, a salute to Francis Lewis High School class of 2011!
Khaair Morrison is a student leader at Francis Lewis High School class of 2011, and advocate for student rights. "My name is Khaair Morrison I am a youth activist, community organizer, and motivational speaker, hailing from Queens, New York. As a senior at Francis Lewis high School in Queens, I have taken a keen interest on educational, juvenile justice, and immigration issues, which are just a few of the issues that I've fought for and that directly affect my generation.I have also been sought out as a motivational speaker. I have spoken to youths at many events, including an outreach to youth at Hunter college, a panel at Columbia University, and youth organizations around the city. I enjoy supporting other youth who have ambitions to be young politicians, in business and whatever field interest them." I salute the class of 2011, at Francis Lewis High School! Happy birthday Khaair!
